Mr. Hopkins,

Greetings, I'm Dave McDermaid and I served with K Troop, 3/2 ACR from 1990-1992 (I served as the unit supply clerk/armorer with CPL Shay and SPC Perry).

I was curious to know whether or not you may be willing to participate in a project that I am considering: writing a book on the 3/2 ACR Desert Shield/Storm story?

I'm in the initial stages of the idea however, I decided that I should see whether or not unit members would be willing to share their experiences with me towards completing the overall story.

I appreciate your time and consideration in the matter, many thanks in advance of your reply.

Very Respectfully,

Dave McDermaid

Hop im so glad you responded i still cant believe i saw your picture on this site. I regret not staying in touch with my K-trp friends its like i ste pped back in time. I also saw a picture of T.Cole good guy wonder if he remembers me. Speaking of pictures i have a picture of us with Ellison, Perry, and Fox at the border camp the snow was ankle deep its been hanging in my living room for years i look at it from time to time and it always brings a smile. I dont get the chance to get on my computer as much as id like to so i was hopeing we could catch up by phone its been 19 yrs. since i left Pond Barracks we had a lot of good times there. Its funny i can talk to friends about my time in Amberg but only someone who was there with you can really appreciate it. Hit me back if interested in exchanging numbers hope to hear from you soon.

Theodore Hopkins I have pictures from one of our frequent stays at Camp May. Once I get re-settled in Colorado over the next couple of months I'll work on getting them scanned and posted. You are in some of them.

Toujours Pret Theodore,
Welcome to the new DragoonBase, the new Base has plenty of newer features, lots of sub-groups,(ie,F-Trp,Amberg,Medics,etc.) and links for 2nd Cav News and History.
Robb Russell has posted some tips for navigating the site (ie,photos,links,ect) in the Forum.
Make sure you stop by and read the latest Tacoma Dave ‘Triva Quiz’, learn some 2nd Cav history and you can even win a kool prize.
If you need any help, you can contact Robb, or any of the 5 admins listed at the top of the page, or just yell out, another member may be able to help you.
And our only wish, ‘Keep it clean’, use our Real names/with Pictures(pix from back in the day, work best for searching for Brothers, but any picture will do).
And that you please tell all your friends about the new DragoonBase.

Thanks again for joining Dragoon Base, and for your service to our great country,
Jesse Kelley
